See what we’ve been working on and released over the last month...

We are excited to announce the recent changes and updates we have released into the Medirecords product. Below you will find a summary of each of the changes we have made. 

Observations Improvements

Improvements have been made to the Observations function, so that all observations may now appear within the timeline graph view, rather than a selected amount, improving visibility of a patient’s health over time.

 

Percentile Value Added to Observations Grid

The PCT value will now display within the Observations grid when the Percentile tick-box has been selected.

 

Added Hover Information to Timeline View

Hovering over an entry in the Observation Timeline view will now display the percentile value, the user who created the entry, and the date of entry.

Appointment Book Username Update

Provider usernames have been updated within the Appointment Book to display First and Surname. If a status has been added to the provider and their full name exceeds the character limit, then only the provider’s surname will be displayed alongside the status.

Given Field Added to Immunisations Grid

The Given Field is now available within the Immunisation Grid, so you may tell at a quick glance whether an immunization was given elsewhere, given within the clinic, or if the immunization was declined.

 

Practice Wide Patient Chat

Users may now view all chat threads on a Patient Record Dashboard, regardless of who created the chat message or received it. This ensures that all chat correspondence is available on the Patient Record for all users.

 

Comments Added to Investigations Grid

Now when viewing the Investigations grid, you may see any Comments that have been added to a result item. A preview of the comments will be displayed where space allows, and hovering over the preview will show the entire comment.

 

My Health Record Fields Added to Encounter Form

Checkboxes have been added to the Encounter Form, for “Uploaded to My Health Record”, and “Health Summary Sent to GP”, for practices using My Health Record functionality.

 

Activities Filter Change

Activities will now be ordered by earliest due date first in both the patient record and within the Activities/Tasks window, to improve the prioritisation of Activities.

 

New Print Letter Button Location within Letter Editor

The Print button has been moved from within the More menu, to it’s own button above the letter, to improve the speed of printing letters.

The following fund schedules have been successfully uploaded into Medirecords, and are available immediately.

    Batch and Expiry Fields Added to Custom Drug Recipes

    When creating or editing a drug recipe, you may now add your own batch number and expiry. Once a drug has passed the expiry date set within the recipe, you will not be able to prescribe this drug again.

     

    Alcohol and Smoking Indicators in Patient Screen

    You may now review the alcohol and smoking status of a patient easily, due to 2 new icons added to the patient field. Provided a patient has their alcohol and smoking status recorded within the Tobacco and Alcohol sections of the patient file, these icons will be displayed beside the patient’s date of birth. Hovering over these icons will provide additional information.

     

    Unchecked Mail within Patient Record

    Now when you click on the unchecked mail icon within the patient record, you will be directed to the appropriate result or secure message in question for quick review.

     

    Additional Claim Type – Scheme – AGC (Access Gap Cover)

    Scheme-AGC has been added as a default claim type within the ECLIPSE configuration window found within Preferences > ECLIPSE. More information on the Access Gap Cover claiming process can be found here: https://www.ahsa.com.au/web/doctors/agc
